Úrsula Hilaria Celia de la Caridad Cruz Alfonso was no unsung hero. Dubbed the Queen of Salsa, her vibrant personality, infectious smile and commanding voice won the hearts of millions. A proud Afro Cuban, Celia Cruz paid tribute to her ancestors in large and small ways, including through the use of the word "azucar" a reference to her enslaved ancestors work in sugar cane fields.
This cookie is a play on Arroz con Leche, a rice based dessert cherished in many countries but perfected in Cuba. It is, essentially, rice pudding, so we're bringing it back to celebrate Rice Pudding Day (Wednesday, August 9th). A little spicy, a little sweet, this little cookie will give the people what they want.
Note: The "Traditional" version of this cookie is Gluten-Sensitive.
Sold by the dozen.
